  • Nice view into traditional Japnaese culture
    For me this was interesting to watch since a Shinto Shrine is not of average nature (no portals to Hell or Mechas from the world of the gods) and minimal magical realism - you see the Messengers To the Gods (though they are more comic than dramatic) - and the daily business of a family running a shrine. Perhaps the only real plot here is a young shrine priestess and a guest priest finding a way ...

  • I love this show!!!!
    It's a nice slice-of-life show that portrays the relationships between friends, family, and heralds of the shrines.
    I would most definitely recommend this show to anyone. In some ways, it is similar in feeling and atmosphere with Natsume Yuujinchou..

    Good show but needs more
    Too short of a series even though I enjoyed every episode. I feel like it could have been at least 24 episodes to give us a little more about each character and where their lives went from the Summer Cleansing on. Very nostalgic feel, some moments reminded me of Natusume Yuujinchou. Overall a good series. 4/5 stars.

    Boring and wasn't worth my time.
    I've noticed that just about everyone left good reviews for this one, so I hate to be the bad egg, but whatever. I thought the story was boring and slow paced. Not much seemed to happen and some of the voices of the characters were just annoying to listen to. I love a great "feel-good" anime now and then, but this didn't make me feel warm and toasty inside one bit. It felt empty and lacked any ...

    Warm feel-good anime.
    A nice slice of life anime mixed with a touch of Natsume's Book of Friends nostalgia. Consistently satisfying every episode and left you feeling happy. It wrapped up nicely, though has plenty of room to grow. Definitely deserves another season or two.

  • The little things in life.
    Where do I start with this series? It's happy, light hearted, contains elements of character development, and humor that is in just the right dose to keep the viewer paying attention to the story, there is even a few hints of romance too.

    From my own perspective; I noticed each episode being packed to the brim with as much story as possible, which is a welcome sight in my opinion. The animation ...

    Such a wonderful show!
    I loved this show. The slice of life genre is pretty great and this show is one of the best. The characters were great, the story was great everything was awesome, except that it was so short. I feel they could have gone another 12 episodes or so, and do deeper character development. However in the end it was just a glimpse into the lives of these characters. I really hope they somehow create a ...

  • A relaxing and cheerful series worthy of five stars.
    This was a wonderful slice of life series. It moves at an enjoyable pace, and keeps you smiling throughout. It is not incredibly exciting, and trauma and tragedy is almost nonexistent. Even without fan service, violence, and a rollercoaster of emotions, this series was never boring. Every minute was pleasant and enjoyable, and I am eagerly awaiting the DVD release.

    Nice and captivating series.
    There is no angst or very sad stories in this series, like Natsume (http://www.crunchyroll.com/natsume-yujin-cho), but calm accepting cuteness during the twelve story's chapters. There will be no fan-service in this one, what is a good thing after so many panties, and other things, empty stories around.
    The story is based on shrines, their keepers, and deities. The relationship ...
